    These things are all great. why don’t we harness all these people to initiate programs to teach kids to read and not steal cars? the only way out of poverty is jobs and education.

    @wisconsin Conservative Digest, I’m sure that Mayor Barrett would say that is exactly what they are aiming for, glad you two finally agree on something.

    I really like the stat:
    “Milwaukee has the most new restaurants and bars per capita in the United States.”

    Any idea where Mandel found that factoid?

  3. Wisconsin Conservative Digest says:

    Bars, Restaurants??? I am so excited I peed pants. My priorities are: reduce violence, teach kids to read, stop car thefts, stop human trafficking, reduce heroin epidemic, fill abandoned houses, improve management. jobs for youth. Bars, restaurants, arena are at bottom of list

    Sorry, I thought you wanted people to help create jobs and to educate people to lift them out of poverty. How do you proposed to accomplish that without attracting people who are educated and/or create jobs?

    @Hereiam. You’ll get dizzy trying to debate WCD. He’s not interested in solutions.

  6. wisconsin Conservative Digest says:

    First things first: Get Milwaukee out of top ten most violent and fix MPS, from there you can build the city back.
    Nobody is opposed to these other things but to play with frosting when the cake is moldy is silly.
    If your family was starving, no clothes and rampant crime, out the front door, what good are the rest of these things?
